I'm fairly certain this is what Roxio will unbox: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dmVU08zVpA
pom-pom holsters?Someone sure went to a militant highschool.
So, Apple announced a transition to Intel hardware, and PPC notebook sales slow to a crawl. Then Intel hardware is released and Apple's notebook sales jump. My mind has thus been blown. Quick, upgrade the stock! :/
"Gin Blossoms to rock..." Oddly enough, I think this phrase can be found in Webster's under "oxymoron."
Worst browser ever made? You're kidding right? IE 5 was fantastic when it first came out. At the time it was one of the best browsers to grace a consumer OS. It rendered pages beautifully, was quick, and showcased a number of interface elements that have been adopted by most major browsers. Moreover features like it's download manager have really yet to be rivaled... although Mozilla took a stab at it. The problem is, Microsoft let it rot and die. They didn't update it,...

[quote]Originally posted by Gambit: Well, I think 90% of all OS 9 users who complain about X say X sucks because it's different and they don't want to learn a new system. What I think you should do is rethink the way you approach OS X. I think you should learn that in order to defeat your enemy, you should get to know them first. That way, you might actually appreciate all X has to offer, both good and bad. I think I'm done.
